What is Standing Bar?

Standing Bar is Hanoi’s go-to location for craft beer lovers! Built upon the Japanese concept of Tachinomiya (quite literally standing-drinking-place) Standing Bar is the perfect destination for an after-work drink and bites with colleagues, a few quality ales and tapas before a night out on the town with friends, or perhaps a late night one-for-the-road and midnight snack.

Craft Beers & Ciders

Boasting an impressive tap room featuring 19 taps, Standing Bar serves up brews from a host of Vietnamese craft beer brands across the length of the country, in the process gaining a deserved reputation as a place where almost any beer brewed in Vietnam can be tasted.

Servings are small to enable you to enjoy a variety of flavours whilst plotting your route across our beer map.
